New! Science in the Wild: Creek Exploration Family Field Trip

Sunday, April 25, 2021

9:00 AM-11:00 AM

Now is your chance to get your feet wet, literally, to help Academy scientists gather critical data about our waterways, including the invertebrates that rely on them.

Join Academy staff for an exclusive outdoor opportunity to try some guided community science at Kirkwood Preserve.

Test the waters and identify the species that live there as you learn about the ecology, equipment and methodology that scientists use to explore and understand creek systems. You’ll meet scientist Stef Kroll, PhD, and find out what the Kroll Lab at the Academy is doing to make the world a better place. No experience or equipment necessary, but we do recommend wearing shoes that can get wet and muddy.

Transportation is not included to Kirkwood Preserve. Field trip waivers will be sent upon registration. All social distancing and mask measures must be adhered to during the program. This event is rain or shine, as safety allows. Be prepared to dive in and have some fun!
